The Ruffle Coat

Ruffle detailing is a modern and sexy update on the classic trench coat. I found a few great ruffle coats that are feminine, but not too frou-frou. 

My inspiration was this Phillip Lim silk trench coat, which by the way, is already sold out on net-a-porter. I can't say I'm surprised; it's gorgeous in person. Phillip Lim is a master at ruffles. 



This Forever 21 coat is sublimely elegant; the collar is divine. 


Loeffler Randall's trench is classic and demure. 


The front ruffle on this BCBG trench is innovative and chic. 


The ruffle detailing on the collar/cuffs of this J.Crew slicker is positively sweet.

Just love these ruffle coats, especially the sheer black one. Better get back on that bike today and make it a really long ride if I want to wear one of the glam coats (dresses?).

I LOVE the BCBG, but the J. Crew one is a winner, too. Actually, I would take all!

I love the color of the JCrew coat -- perfect for summer.

I would like to own all of these! I do like the coral color of the last one shown - very pretty for spring/summer! Another one of my favorite brands for trench coats is Hazel - I think you would like their brand, as well. Here is their site:

Anne-you are so sweet and so supportive. Thank you so much.

A Gift Wrapped Life- one of the things that draws me to the Phillip Lim coat is that it's sheer. max axria has done some beautiful sheer coats in the past too.

g.- I cannot choose either. They're all too cute.

Averill- The colors at J. Crew are always so fresh and pretty.

Style Redux said...

Sarah Klassen- There are some cute finds on that site. I'm reminded of Anthropologie.

annechovie- The ruffled trench is great. A great price now too.

I'll take the tan one, thanks. Just add it to my tab!
